Historical Note

British European Airways, formerly British European Airways Corporation, was established as a division of British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) in 1946. That same year it became a corporation in its own right. The airline ceased operations in April 1974 when it merged with BOAC to form British Airways.
